Hero MotoCorp's Production Affected by Agitation in Haryana

Hero MotoCorp's Production Affected by Agitation in Haryana expand View Photos

The on-going riots in Jat communities near Rohtak, have had a crippling effect on trade and commerce in and around the region, the effects of which are now being felt in New Delhi. The communal uprising resulted in disrupting Delhi's water supply up until yesterday, as thousands of troops were sent in to the conflict regions to reclaim the Munak canal that supplies a reported 60 per cent of Delhi's fresh water. Some semblance of normality has now returned as Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar has reportedly 'accepted' the demands of the mob which primarily involve the availability of quota in the jobs, schools and colleges under OBC category.

Industries that have factories based out of agitation hit regions, have struggled to cope with the dwindling supply of components and lack of availability of transport. The blockading of roads and highways as well as the burning down of the train station have not helped the situation either as company dispatches have been affected even if production may not have been. Speaking with regards to the affects the riots have had over the last few days, a Hero MotoCorp spokesperson yesterday stated," Dispatches from all our plants - at Gurgaon and Dharuhera (Haryana), Neemrana (Rajasthan) and Haridwar (Uttarakhand) - have been affected due to the ongoing blockade of the national highways and other roads. Production output has also been partially impacted today at our plants due to the ongoing impasse."

Rohtak, Manesar and their surrounding areas, are known to harbour several manufacturing facilities as they come under a huge industrial belt that feeds the national capital. Most companies operating in these regions have been adversely affected by the rioting. Saturday saw Indian carmaking giant, Maruti Suzuki, temporarily halt production at its Manesar and Gurgaon plants due to the supply of components having been cut off. The company is trying to get the components from other sources but the company is yet to comment on when normal operations are expected to resume.
